welcome to my journal

Hi friend! My name is Jessica, I am a newborn and family photographer based in Washington Dc. I find it an absolute honor to photograph you with your little ones. I adore baby toes and that unforgettable newborn smell. 

This newborn session was just what I dream of. Both parents were so relaxed and in love. Cece was excited about being a big sister but of course, wanted to poke little Hatcher’s eyes. It’s something all toddlers try to do and I think it is adorable every time. We stared the session by all […]

A Cozy Newborn Session at Home | Springfield VA Newborn Photographer

I have photographed this family for years but this session felt extra special. Their extended family was all together for the first time since the pandemic. I love when an entire family can spend quality time together and take photos of those memories. We chose one of the hottest days but the children were amazing. […]

An Extended Family Session in Old Town Alexandria

This session was such a delight. It took me out of my regular DC landscape of architecture and parks to the beautiful hills of West Virginia. The R family have been clients of mine for 5 years and they bought a historic mill and turned it into their home. They are the kindest and warm […]

A Family Session in the Country | West Virginia Family Photographer

I love when families and friends come together to love and support a child. Little Millie had her baptism on Saturday and it was incredible to watch their support system. Two of their best friends are Millie’s godparents and both sets of grandparents were also present. It was a sweet time of celebration and just […]

Millie’s Baptism | Washington, DC Family Photographer

One of my favorite moments during newborn sessions is walking into the nursery. The decor says so much about the family and things they love. The tiniest details matter and they welcome a new babe into their home. Little Mable was baby #3 and still had all the care to detail as the first. This […]

A Cream and Black Nursery |Washington, DC Newborn Photographer

Meet baby Terrington. He was such an incredibly calm baby. We took most of his portraits in the living room because they had a small space and that was the room with the most light. It’s amazing what you can do when you have a lot of natural light. Then we moved outside and took […]

A Summer Newborn Session | Washington, DC Newborn Photographer

Summers in DC can be sweltering and this session was no exception. How Ted and Lauren remained flawless through mosquitoes and 90% humidity I will never know. They are amazing! And little Gwendolyn was a sweet as can be. We met early in hopes to beat some of the heat which helped immensely. The Basilica […]

A Summer Family Session in DC | Washington, DC Family Photographer

Parents put so much thought into the details of their nursery. I adore featuring these special rooms that you design to bring your little ones home to. The artwork to the books to the lamps. Each little piece plays a part and helps to tell your story. Miss Bee’s room was full of muted pinks […]

A Pink and Floral Nursery | Washington, DC Newborn Photographer

If there’s one thing my infertility has taught me…women need each other. We desperately need cheerleaders in our corner. But what happens when a women you know and love gets the very thing you desire?  Our attitudes are like muscles. The more you train the stronger you become. And sometimes you will be surprised at […]
